PHOENIX - Forecasters predict wet weather across Arizona into Friday with heavy rainfall that could produce runoff flows into mountain creeks and streams and the possibility of flash flooding in desert areas.

A flood watch issued by the National Weather Service for parts of south-central Arizona says normally dry creeks and rivers could be running and that there's a possibility of flooding in communities such as Cave Creek and New River on the northern outskirts of metro Phoenix.

A flash flood watch was issued for northwestern Arizona, and showers are expected across southern Arizona
